There are some sporting incidents that you watch and when you see them all you can say is “are you fucking kidding me?” I.E. Ron Artest.
Angel Valodia Matos provided one of those moments during the Olympics for us.
Guardian – Cuba’s Angel Valodia Matos lashed out at a referee and a judge after being disqualified from his bronze medal bout with Kazakhstan’s Arman Chilmanov in the Olympic taekwondo men’s +80-kg tournament.
Matos kicked Swedish judge Chakir Chelbat in the head as coaches from both teams ran on to the mat to dispute the result. The Cuban was leading 3-2 in the second period of the contest when Matos stopped to receive treatment for a foot injury. Competitors are allowed a one minute period to treat injuries, and when this time elapsed the referee awarded the contest to Chilmanov.
After a heated exchange on the mat, Matos pushed the match referee and then caught the Swedish judge in the head with a high kick. Matos then spat on the floor was promptly dragged from the scene by his back-room staff.
If you don’t believe that this actually happened, here’s the video.
And to top it off, his dumbass got a lifetime ban from the World Taekwondo Federation championships. So no more tournaments for you.
With everyone talking about Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt having the most memorable moments in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, for me this gets the nod. Well, either that or this. Now I’m waiting to see Rasheed Wallace or Lou Pinella do this.
